After five rounds he said the fate of the two teams could not have been more different.
Delhi are battling relegation with just five points, while Mumbai, who have won three, are likely to qualify for the knockout rounds and are among the frontrunners for the title given the form of some of their players.

The lack of depth in bowling has been Delhi’s Achilles heel this season.

None of the fast front-line bowlers were available and no bowler had taken more than nine wickets. Maharashtra and Andorra.

Mumbai, on the other hand, performed well by his duo of Thanush his Kotian (19 wickets) and Shams his Murani (35 wickets) spins. Left-arm spinner Murani is the second highest wicket taker in the Ranji Trophy this season, behind Kerala’s Jaraji Saxena.

Suryakumar Yadav and Shardul Thakur are members of India’s squad for the One-Day International series against New Zealand and will be absent.
